@Ryno You've got great taste indeed my friend! Not only is that the best game in existence, but it also has one of the best soundtracks to boot!

Oh man, how could I of missed this thread. It must of been hiding behind the shadows Gaiden style.
Anyways, these 2 songs are TIED for my favorite song of the 80's.

Pseudo Echo - In His Eyes - (Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning)
This track is amazing in all of it's funky synthased glory. It's a killer boogy song and definitly sets some killer crazy fun atmosphere, and i always throw it on for Halloween. Great for Parties!

This track was also used in Vilotes death scene in Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning, seen here.
[youtube:g74X9EtVO9A&feature=related]

Ah-ha - The Sun always shines on TV
Oh man do i love this song, especially when it starts to kick in at '0:51' and then that killer synthy beats blast out at '1:12' which is possibly one of my favorites parts in 80's music history. Meanwhile the Keyboarderst is rocken one one wild mullet, while the lead singer eventually hops in and looks a little too passionate in the mega process.lol

Thank you Slapshot! I know Ninja Gaiden music is most excellent. The only reason I dont raise it up to super premium status level is because the songs are to short. Buuuutttttt, the music sure gets you in the zone for A Strategic Encounter and The Fight Of Your Life. Oh man... how I just love the writing that comes with the old NES and SNES boxes and manuals, totally worth the extra money to get the classics CIB. That is cool it is your favorite game, certainly worthy. I have it my top 3 NES games and around # 7-8 overall.

Sounds like the best techno rave ever. I know I'd go in if I heard this music from my lawn.

I've got more, but I'll save it for another post. Listening to these again makes me realize they don't make video game (or any other genre) music like they used to. Guess I'd need a psychiatrist to explain why the chiptunes of yesteryear sound infinitely better to me than the orchestrated pieces today, but that's just the way it is. I think everything about video games these days (music, graphics, etc.) is so lifelike that they don't feel so much like video games anymore. Maybe I've just lived too long seeing the early days of gaming, LOL.
